As Rebekah, a multiracial teenager, confronts herself in the mirror, the Nap Patrol storms in to prevent her from cutting off her hair. Armed with beauty supplies and armfuls of Ebony magazines, the Nap Patrol Officers are determined to teach Rebekah to "love her beautiful Black heritage," but on their own terms and within their own definition of what it is to "be Black." A poignant satire of racial politics, this play explores the rigid notions of beauty, race, and heritage within our society.

Published Reviews

"While very funny, Heritage also addressed the issue of racism within the black community and challenged the accepted ideas of what a black woman 'should' do to her hair."
